Saturday Night Live 2012-13 - Page 6

post #151 of 389
Once again the later showed skits seemed to be the best.

Loved the Maine (Cajun) justice one and the crystals ad featuring former porn stars.

Audience seemed amped up for mr. Fox who performed admirably.

After all, that's where Cajuns came from originally: Acadia.

Whichever writer came up with "Dylan McDermott or Dermot Mulroney" deserves a raise. Right now. Because that was hysterical.
post #154 of 389
Yes, it was, especially where Mulroney forgot which one he is.

I was laughing so hard I couldn't breath. Really the only funny skit for me last night...
post #156 of 389
Funniest part about it, I didn't know the difference, either. But I do know who Djimon Hounsou and Chiwetel Ejiofor are!! And both were in Amistad wink.gif
post #157 of 389
Why are they not using Nasim?

I'm not happy.

Both skits were hilarious.

And then there's Adewale Akinnuoye-Agbaje.

Of the three, Djimon Hounsou is the only one I'd even heard of before, and with my prosopagnosia it would take me a lifetime to learn to distinguish them in photographs.  On the other hand, if their voices are different, I could learn to tell those apart.

All three indeed have very different sounding voices. Two are British and one is a French-African American. Of the two British, one has a noticeably deeper voice from the other.
post #162 of 389
Thank you, Tighr.  To be honest, if Mulroney and McDermott were standing next to each other, I'd distinguish them by their stature (McDermott is 3-4" taller than Mulroney) much faster than by their faces.  Faces are hard for me to learn, and that almost brings us back to topic, because every time there are new cast members or featured players on SNL, it takes me half the season to learn to recognize them and identify who is playing what.
post #163 of 389
But the real question is still "why aren't they using Nasim???" She had about three lines as part of the Jamie Foxx quiz show skit.

(and TWO quiz show skits in one night? with one where the whole punch line was the repeated use of the word b*t*h, at which point the audience was supposed to spontaneously break into hysterical laughter?? LAME)

The McDermott/Mulroney thing came up again tonight on CBS, in the second of the two episodes of "2 Broke Girls."

That's too obscure to be a coincidence...
post #166 of 389
Not obscure at all.  It's been a running joke since the 1990s (Mulroney's referred to it during interviews, and maybe McDermott has too), and I'm sure it's just a coincidence that a live sketch show and a taped scripted show on different networks from different production companies used it on episodes broadcast close together.
post #167 of 389
obscure to me as i had never heard of either actor prior to snl's skit
post #168 of 389
Finally caught the episode. As others pointed out, the final two skits were by far the best. Not just good for SNL, but great for comedy. Something's never go out of style...ANAL! Loved it. I enjoyed the Dermot Mulroney skit as well, and also agree that the glaring lack of Nasim is a shame. All the new girls are getting much more air time than her, so it much be coming down to who is writing the best stuff.
post #169 of 389
Checking in.

Although, I'm listening to music, the TV is on in the background rolleyes.gif

Joe Walsh played with Paul McCartney.
post #171 of 389
There's a bull s#$! around 12:30am ET to be edited out for the west coast.
post #172 of 389
Props to Kenan Thompson for the quick "That costs us money" comment afterward.
post #173 of 389
I'm surprised the censors let Samuel L Jackson get away with the 3 swear words he used in that last skit(1 f bomb and 2 s words).
post #174 of 389
None of it was edited out here.

(What the hell is this right now - Paul McCartney trying to be heavy metal? I was waiting to hear Dave Grohl say, "I've got blisters on me fingers!" at the end.)
post #175 of 389
That's Paul with Nirvana.
post #176 of 389
Aha. I didn't even recognize the other guys. They looked awful young. Still, an odd pairing.
post #177 of 389
I've only watched up until the news, but I wasn't expecting much. How wrong I was. Lots of great stuff early on. You're a Rat Bastard, Charlie Brown killed me. Loved the OBGYN skit as well. The cameos are great. Joe Walsh was a nice surprise, and it sounds like I'll be seeing Nirvana near the end, which will be a treat.

I'm surprised
  1. that there's no seven-second delay for that purpose,
  2. that after the first one slipped through they didn't kill Jackson's microphone, and
  3. that I actually heard them, having completely failed to catch Jenny Slate's expletive back in 2009.

(I never saw the 1980 show where Charles Rocket swore, but I heard about it and got the reference to it a few episodes later.)
 
post #179 of 389
Nice cold opening, under the circumstances. Don't think I've ever seen them do anything like that before (I'm sure they did something similar after 9/11 but don't remember it).
post #180 of 389
"What up with that" is another one joke skit that the writers have milked week after week. It's got to go.
